wanting you.

i just want to feel your touch.
i’d give anything to be with you.
to feel your arms around me.
so tightly.
i want you more than words can express. 
i want you to be near me in so many ways. 
while everyone tells me to stop wanting you -
it makes it even harder to resist you. 
they say it will only end in heartbreak -
it’s best not to feel this way -
but i want you. 
i can’t help it. 
if this was the other way around -
if we were different - if we were like them
they wouldn’t be saying a thing. 
they’d be happy for me.
